There is a reasonable expectation that autonomous vehicles will dominate the future of transport. Utopian visions suggest these driverless vehicles will lead to dramatic changes to our cities and their transportation.
St John’s Church, Branxton, is a structure of modest scale and grand gesture. Set among dwellings of a similar size in the small country town an hour north west of Newcastle, it is dwarfed by the gum trees that surround it.

Designed by Ian Ferrier (Donoghue, Cusick, and Edwards) and guarding a corner block in Darwin’s CBD, a ferro-cement parabolic arch runs the entire 58m length of St Mary’s Cathedral in Darwin, stepping closely towards Smith Street.

The Bicentennial Conservatory is intriguing not simply for what one sees in it, but through it. Passing by a set of renovated Edwardian buildings at the entrance to Adelaide’s Botanic Gardens on the Princes Highway, the city block turns quickly to gardens and bushland.
Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) was and still is one of America's most celebrated architects. From the Guggenheim Museum in New York to the Imperial Hotel in Japan, Wright's work is far-reaching and iconic.

In order to counteract the effects of global warming, we need to consider ways to enhance biodiversity within our cities.
It must be said that designing an early learning centre (ELC) is a special beast. There’s the unique set of design standards and minimum requirements for things such as floorspace, fall zones, entrapment, amenity and storage.
In this Sections² we look at Collins House, which was designed by Bates Smart for the Golden Age Group.
